You mentioned the key. The 117 ) or was) canadian tire pro shops / speciality stores sure do have buying power but not canadian tire corporate any more with guns are ammo after that 2018 memo since they are out selling firearms and ammo. The one caperaway mentioned is one of the top three in canada speciality shops for volume so one can understand why their counter guy can get ammo on a regular basis but the poor guy in sydney right now sure can't regardless what some thinkGrand Prairie CT also has a Lot of firearms, there pro shop section is quite large as well. I was there over the weekend, lots of ammo but not like what they usually have. Peace River CT also has a ton of ammo but not a huge selection of firearms. There are a couple of shops like Bartons and Primetime that carry quite a bit of ammunition as well. The shortages are in pockets of Alberta, not throughout the entire province lol. Of course where I am… shortage….go figure. But I have no problem driving 3-5 hours for a long weekend getaway and pick up any ammunition I may need.
I spoke to my bud also last night and like you he will have to drive 4 hours to fort mac to stock up
At one time you could see a list of these pro shops but doesn't seem to be there now
Wonder if these all happened in NS in 2014 as planned
Not my words
In Sept. there are a few local Canadian Tire locations that will be adding a new Pro Shop section in their stores which will be dedicated to hunting and fishing. These new CT Pro Shops will have a much larger selection of products compared to what is available now. I will be making in store appearances representing Lunkerhunt Premium Fishing Products at the following locations in Sept., Bridgewater, Clayton Park, Bedford and Dartmouth Crossing. Be sure to stop by and introduce yourself and ask any questions you may have for me concerning Lunkerhunt products or just fishing in general.
